Ohio State is now down a couple of veterans as senior cornerback Sevyn Banks and fourth-year junior wide receiver Kamryn Babb will be out the rest of spring with injuries.

Ohio State has confirmed this with Buckeye Scoop.

Banks was a starting cornerback last year for the Buckeyes and is expected to be again this year. His absence, while not ideal, will allow for some necessary growth of the young cornerbacks behind him. In fact, earlier on Thursday, secondary coach Matt Barnes had some very good things to say about redshirt freshman Cam Martinez and true freshman Denzel Burke.

Ohio State has not revealed the nature of either injury.

For Babb, this appears to be a set back following a resurgence that saw him play in every game last year after missing most of his career due to ACL tears. Babb had emerged as a leader among the receivers and will no doubt continue in that role as he handles his rehabilitation.

The Buckeyes are nearing the mid-way point of spring camp.

    That sucks so bad for Babb, I really feel for the kid. Hopefully we can give him a GA spot or something of that nature because it seems like his injury luck won’t let him keep playing. Johnnie Dixon 2.0.

    Tough for Banks too. We really needed him to improve (a lot) to have the secondary play at a championship level. Missing the spring makes that difficult. Gives the young guys lots of reps though. I really wish Jordan Hancock and JK Johnson enrolled early now…

    Amazingly enough, despite those setbacks Dixon caught more touchdowns at Ohio State than Ted Ginn and the same number as Michael Jenkins.
